Re: Unsolved Problems and Unfinished Business.
Lipsey, Mark W.
American Journal of Evaluation, v22 n3 p325-28 Fall 2001
Outlines a few items of "unfinished business" in the profession of evaluation, focusing on outcome evaluation, also called impact evaluation. No issue related to the future of evaluation seems more important than that of finding routine methods to assess the impact of everyday practical programs on the social conditions they address. Also discusses the accumulation of knowledge in the area of program evaluation and the issue of defining programs. (SLD)
